Private/Corporate Photo Retreat

What’s more fun than hanging out with a gaggle of friends?

Hanging out with a gaggle of friends while getting fabulous photographs of course.

I’ve teamed with Amy Ashurst of The RYE Studio to make getting fresh and fabulous photos easy + breezy. Clients have used their photos for projects like; that book you’re dying to write, website, work or Linked-IN, business, social media and dating sites, or just to have a freaking fabulous photo to give you a boost in confidence.

It really is the most fun you’ll ever have updating your photos.

Real Estate Agents, Doctor’s Offices, Yoga Teachers, Wellness Practitioners, Fashion Designers, we’ve photographed folks in all types of business’s.

We’d love to take your photos too.

Host a private Photo Retreat for a group of friends or co-workers to update photos for your website, LinkedIN, or marketing materials.

What’s included:

  • Rock-star photo shoot with RYE
  • 3 photos of your choice in both black and white and color (that’s like getting 6 photos!)
  • A group shot to remember your day together
  • A fancy lunch to eat on site or take on the go
  • Socializing + networking/teambuilding + giggles
  • Lots of support and cheers from your retreat buddies (Huzzah!)

You’ll own the rights to your photos so you can use them + print them as you wish. AND you can purchase any additional photos for just $25 each. (psst- that’s half off the regular rate.)

Always included with your retreat are these bonus items to support you before and after the retreat.

  • Retreat Guide filled handy tips on what to what-the-heck to wear, what to expect, and how to prepare for the retreat so you will rock-the-socks off your photo shoot.
  • A copy of my e-book How To Get The MOST Out Of Your Photos. A guide on posting, printing, and marketing with your new photos.


Cost: $300


How to book your retreat:

Contact Trish via the form at the bottom of this page to schedule a date for your retreat. Please put “book a private retreat” in the subject line.


  • You’ll need a minimum of 6 friends booked + paid to save the date.
  • Maximum number of participants is 8 (or 10 depending on the type of photos needed).
  • If your group is larger than 10 we will book your event over several days. (We’ve done these many times.)
  • For busy corporate offices- who just need a few headshots per person- ask about same day delivery. (Same day delivery is only available in certain situations and must be agreed to ahead of time- so we can allow time for editing. If you need a lot of photos this option will NOT be available for your group.)

Hostess Responsibilities:

Your main job is getting your retreaters booked and paid as quickly as possible so we can LOCK IN your retreat date. After that it’s pretty smooth sailing on your end. Just show up prepared to have fun and we’ll take care of the rest.


Hostess Gift:

As a gift for hosting your group we will include 2 extra photos in your package- for a total of 5 photos for you as hostess. Yay!

Cancellations: If you must cancel and you do so at least 2 weeks prior to your retreat- you will receive a full credit to attend on another date. Cancellations with less than two weeks’ notice due to emergency may receive a partial credit to attend on another date- decided on a case by case basis.

I loved hosting a photo retreat! I wanted some new headshots, but I knew if I did it by myself it would be boring. When I saw that Trish specialized in small group photo retreats, it was instantly a done deal!  I’ve done a couple of them now and I will never do professional pictures any other way.

You have no idea how long it’s been since I’ve actually liked any photos of myself – they usually look stiff or forced.  

The photos I got at the retreat look very natural and authentic and I loved all the different backdrops and settings at the studio. Thanks so much Trish and Rye. Kudos!

“I had been putting off updating all of my social media and website materials for an upcoming campaign because I didn’t have any head shots that I really loved.  I came across Trish’s photo retreat – and was so intrigued!  The idea of a less formal group setting, with the timing to really make sure I had several great shots in a variety of outfits and backgrounds seemed like a perfect fit…and I was not disappointed!

Trish’s communication throughout the process was great, and Rye’s shots were fantastic!

Exactly what I was hoping I’d get, and more.  I would highly recommend the photo retreats to anyone who is looking for something beyond the stale traditional head shot photos, or who has always been anxious about the formal photography setting.  Thanks Trish!”

“I had such a wonderful time! Trish’s energy is spectacular and Rye captured my smile, my energy, and found my quirky side too. They truly represent my authenticity, transparency and happiness that is so much a part of my brand.

I felt so safe. Like the ladies in the room were there to lift each other up and cheer each other on in a way that wouldn’t necessarily happen in a one-on-one session.  Yet, the time I got with Rye one-on-one was just perfect!  She made me feel so special and important and that was the cherry on top!

The food was delicious.  So fresh and LOCAL!!!  The personal touch- honey from your kid’s bee hives- made it all the more tasty!

I don’t know what else to say, just a great big THANK YOU!”

“I had a very bad picture experience at our son’s wedding and cried for 18 hours (not joking). I was determined to move forward after that experience by having my photo taken in a fun and beautiful setting.

I was hoping for one photo that I really liked and could feel good about uploading to social media.  I got 11!

The pictures reflect who I am in my business life but also in my life in general. One of my friends saw my photos and said  ‘Wow, she really captured YOU!’  and yes, I think she did.

Somehow, viewing my photos from the retreat has allowed me to actually see how much I do love myself- by allowing my real essence to be captured.  I feel like Rye really saw me and it show’s in the pictures.

What I wanted most from my photo shoot was a photo of myself where I looked as beautiful and sexy as I feel. I got exactly that!

Thank you Trish!  Thank you RYE!”

“The Photo Retreat was really special. It was wonderful to have a group of women working together to support each other. I loved the studio and the creative use of the props.  And Rye was awesome! I never like to see myself in pictures but I was really pleased with the photos and everyone loved them.

I would totally do it again.”

“I needed some photos to promote my art business since I haven’t had professional photos done since High School (which was a while ago!).

Trish and Rye were very supportive and made the whole process effortless and easy. The studio is a laid back, fun space and I loved that the studio dogs where hanging around during the photo shoot.

The food… was both beautiful and delicious. I had a blast hanging out with great people and watching Rye work her magic with everyone’s shoot.

Rye does an amazing job of capturing the essence of each person that she photographs. I love my photos and get very positive reactions when people see them.”

Gina Elbrader

I needed quality photos, on a small business budget, to build my website and promote my classes and events online. Doing a photo retreat with Trish and Rye was the perfect match! 

These photos are so well done. They reflect professionalism, which is how I want to represent my business, in my online presence and marketing (a selfie just doesn't cut it these days!).  

I love the quality of my images... how Rye drew me out and captured my personality... and the support and encouragement Trish gave throughout the entire process – from before the retreat to delivery of my photos.  

I highly recommend doing a photo retreat to get images that represent you and your business. People want to SEE you and what you have to offer.  Give yourself this gift. Allow yourself to SHINE PEOPLE!!!!”

Trish made the process of updating photos of myself for my business effortless and fun! She took an otherwise overwhelming endeavor and made it warmly memorable. In fact it’s been so enjoyable that I’ve done several retreats and plan to do more!
